I like Euclid Records just fine for what they do, but COME ON. Their selection of heavy metal is miniscule to nonexistent, their used classical section is nothing to get excited about, they don't really have much of a used soul/r&b section, used reggae shares shelf space with world music, they don't have a dedicated used punk section and if they have more than 30 used original cast albums in stock I'll be shocked. Just come out and say "they sell all the hipster fuckknuckle music I like and all the jazz and blues music my dad likes" and be done with it.
Best CD Store (Used) St. Louis 2010 - Euclid Records - CLOSED
Euclid Records has had a busy year. The record store opened a second outpost in New Orleans, released the debut CD from Troubadour Dali on its newly formed record label and continued with its Euclid Sessions series of limited-edition 45s. What's lost in the hubbub? Its selection of used CDs continues to be the best in the city. Although the store's "this just in" bin has always overflowed with classics old and new — we're talking both indie favorites and KSHE staples — the store's entire selection has become a buyer's market. The number of people going digital and dumping their CD collections (or deciding to opt for MP3s over CDs for future purchases) has been a boon for stock. Albums that used to be rare are now easy to find — and as an added bonus, they cost even less than what you'd pay to download 'em.
